Areté Capital Partners announces Jerry F. Coffey as Principal
Advisory firm combines experience with human elements to achieve more successful outcomes
May 27, 2021 — Areté Capital Partners is pleased to announce that Jerry F. Coffey has joined the special-situation advisory firm as principal. Areté’s business model, centered around board advisory work, continues to attract the highest level of employees and partners, and the firm is excited for the recognition it is gaining in the marketplace as a unique value-adding firm. This recognition is evidenced by the quality of people joining the Areté team. The addition of Mr. Coffey is consistent with Areté’s long-term business plan. In the near future, Areté will be announcing additional practice lines that Mr. Coffey will be part of as they continue to find new ways to bring unique value to the market.
Areté’s co-founder, Grant Lyon, noted, “I have worked with Jerry for many years. Jerry has the ability to clearly see what needs to be done when a company is in crisis. He has been through the fires of restructuring both as a member of management and a board member. He is uniquely qualified to assist companies in the energy business during distress. Jerry’s skillset is a perfect fit for Areté and its clients. He can serve as a member of a c-suite board in a principal capacity, which is exactly Areté’s focus. We are excited to partner with Jerry once again.”
